Napoli v. Genoa: Lineups and Match Thread

Marco Luzzani

Despite a huge match coming up on Thursday, Rafa Benitez has gone with basically a full-strength lineup, resting only Gokhan Inler, Lorenzo Insigne, and Christian Maggio. Hopefully the plan is to put the match to bed early and get some rest for some of the others, but who knows with Rafa.

Genoa's lineup sees somewhat more changes than were expected, but it's still a lineup that Napoli should be able to take down so long as they remain focused. Said focus has been an issue at times this year, though another effort like that against Sassuolo last weekend wouldn't go amiss.

Napoli (4-2-3-1): Reina; Reveillere, Fernandez, Albiol, Ghoulam; Behrami, Jorginho; Mertens, Hamsik, Callejon; Higuain
